Tranny gurus, I need to install a trans temp sender for my gauges, I am debating between two methods in the pan or in line. If i was to put in the pan, which is what I am leaning towards right now, I woul ddrill and tap a hole in an aftermarket pan. Haven't quite figured out a way I really like of mounting the sinder in line. If I was to go the pan route, which pan would you recomend? Or, if you prefer the in line method what would be the best way?

Thanks,
-Bryan Miller

I chose to mount mine in the transmission pan. I bought a B&M drainplug kit, installed it on the stock trans pan, and installed the sending unit in place of the drain plug (same threads).

Hey I like that idea. My pan already has a drain plug in it. :D

Thanks again Rod!

Personally, I would put the sensor on the fluid line to the rad. This will give you the hottest temp of the fluid and that is more important IMO than knowing the temp in the pan. The hotter the trans fluid gets, the more it breaks down so knowing it's hottest point is likely what you are after, or if it was my car, what I would want to know.
